DEEP CREEK (San Saba County). Deep Creek rises in southwestern San Saba County at the convergence of East Deep Creek and Middle Deep Creek (at 31°05' N, 99°00' W) and runs north for 8½ miles to its mouth on the San Saba River (at 31°07' N, 99°00' W). A third branch is named West Deep Creek. Deep Creek crosses generally flat terrain with localized dissection, surfaced by stony and shallow clayey soil that supports Ashe juniper, mesquite, live oak, and grasses.
